Because we know that moving to another country or another continent can be a stressful experience, Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage goes the extra mile to ensure your arrival is smooth and trouble-free.
From information and advice before you pack a thing, to our partnership with the Government's Know Before you Go campaign, we help you have a successful move - regardless of where in the world you're moving.
We take the time to understand your move and your concerns, and do everything we can to ensure your move is as smooth as possible.
While there is currently free movement of European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) nationals in the EU, Switzerland and Norway, there's more involved with moving in Europe than just packing your bags and arriving.
We understand the European market like few other removal companies, and have been safely moving household and personal effects for thousands of customers to every destination in Europe including Switzerland, France, Germany, and Ireland for generations.
Before you make an international move, it is best to sort through your paperwork and decide what you don't need to bring with you. There's no sense in moving paperwork that you don't need, especially when you're travelling to another country.
Britannia Bradshaw offers a Move & Shred service - bag or box up your papers to be shredded and we'll collect them for you on moving day. It couldn't be simpler - and your first bag or box of shredding is free (details here)!
When you're moving to a new country, it is easy to concentrate on the logistics of your move and not give much thought to transferring your pension or exchanging your money. However, this can end up costing you far more than you realise.
Did you know that you may be able to pay for the cost of your international removal by utilising a currency transfer service? The savings you make in the currency exchange rates over bank currency exchange rates is often that substantial, and many of our customers have paid for their international moves with these savings.
It is easy to do, but you can't overlook or neglect your pension once you've emigrated from the UK. Withdrawls that fall outside the rules of your new country and HMRC can trigger penalties and taxes, so it is always best to obtain professional advice before you transfer your pension.
Once you have emigrated, it is usually too late to benefit from a pension transfer. Find out more and obtain the right advice for you before your move.
The removal men were FANTASTIC! I cannot recommend them enough! How can you improve perfection?

The best removals experience of all the companies we have used
We have moved home a number of times over the past ten years and this was the best removals experience of all the companies we have used.[We chose Britannia Bradshaw because of a] personal recommendation, excellent internet-based customer reviews, the helpfulness of Diane, who came to quote, and on the competitiveness of the price.
Mike and Martin were extremely professional. They worked very hard over both days to ensure that all the packing, loading and moving went smoothly, whilst consistently taking a "can-do" attitude. They were very polite, took excellent care of our belongings, and not a single element of the job appeared to be too much trouble. Absolutely brilliant.

The move was everything that was promised
Why don't you have an eleven rating [the removal men] would rate it
We needed a full service so looked for a larger company who could supply this and had seen your vehicles around so gave you a chance, after your home visit I was fully confident that you would deliver what we needed and looked no further. The move was everything that was promised and after the delayed move date we were glad that we took up the insurance option, when the delay happened your office staff were on the ball and kept us informed without promising something that might be delivered but managed to deliver anyhow. My wife was left to handle the day due to work commitment and she felt confident with all the lads.

Considerate, friendly & helpful
From our experience I don't think there is need for improvement. The removal crew was brilliant, they were very considerate of what we needed to do and they were very friendly and helpful. They did everything we asked in a timely fashion and given the complexity of what we needed to do e.g. moving contents from two separate sites they were very efficient. Just to thank the crew for their help and for making what could have been a very stressful experience less so. Thanks a million.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone
The move day experience far exceeded our expectations. Considering moving house is meant to be one of the most stressful things you can do, we were relaxed for the whole two days with plenty of time to make a cuppa! We had every confidence in the removals crew. Jay and his team were professional, helpful and kept us organised without being obtrusive. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
